It is time again to put in my two bobs worth for the weekly Friday Fertilizer prompt hosted by "Tootsie Time". You can find her link on my side bar as "Tootsie". Thanks Toots for allowing us all to play in here and show off our careful garden creations. (by the way, 2 bob is old aussie slang for two shillings in the old currency that was replaced by decimal currency in the late 1960's. Equivalent to 20 cents now days.)
The blurry inadequate pic above is of the very first nerine bloom. I have been watching and waiting to see what sort of flower was going to pop open from their snakey looking flower heads. Lots of flower heads unopened still, I am hoping there are some other colors amongst them.
These bright pink little guys are an oxalis of some sort, don't know what the proper name is.
The lovely autumn roses are nearly finished their flowering but there are still just a few pretty buds to go, this is one of the last.
A straggly azalea bush out the back.
There are a few camellia flowers on one of the bushes along the side back fence. Flowering early.......out of season.
This is a collection of the tiny sea shells I took from Rosedale beach on the south coast of N.S.W. I am such a big kid sitting out the back on my swing playing with them and arranging them for my camera. Pete and I went down there for a drive last Tuesday.
That great looking black thing is a sort of seaweed anchor. The holes in it are where the seaweed was joined on to the roots which were clinging to the rocks under water. I reckon they look cool. The little colored shells were in groups washed up everywhere along the beach. They remind me of little boiled lollies.
The real estate agent has informed us that they will be conducting a house inspection on Tuesday next week. I have never had trouble with an inspection before but they do make me nervous. Just the thought of people coming into your home to inspect the quality of your housework is a bit weird, but necessary if you are renting a house I guess. If I was the owner of a rented house I would like to know if the renters were taking good care of it. I can understand that. I should get up from the puter. I have windows to clean, bathrooms to keep fresh. Got to vacuum that spot on the carpet where dear hairy son tipped carpet powder after he made a slop with his food. I should, I should.
I should make a cup of tea first.
It is so nice outside today, clear, cool and bright, 21 degrees was the prediction. We had our first frost for the season a few nights ago. Nice to sleep on cool nights this time of the year.
Better go make that cuppa.
